    This record contains data collected at 15 stations on the Southern Surveyor cruise SS 06/96. Water samples were collected off the east coast of Tasmania, SW Victoria and southern NSW to determine the bio-optical characteristics of water masses in these regions. Parameters measured are the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments and the absorption coefficient for dissolved (CDOM) particulate (a/p) and detrital or non-algal (a/d) components of the water column. This data can be used for the validation of ocean colour sensors. In addition to the station samples, 62 water samples were collected from the outflow of the underway fluorometer and analysed for the concentraion of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments only. The BSI 6-channel radiometer was used at the stations.

    This record contains data collected at 24 stations on the Southern Surveyor cruise SS 03/96. Water samples were collected off the east coast of NSW near Eden and along a transect from Hobart to Eden to determine the bio-optical characteristics of water masses in this region. Parameters measured are the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments and the absorption coefficient for dissolved (CDOM) particulate (a/p) and detrital or non-algal (a/d) components of the water column. In addition to the station samples 124 water samples were collected from the outflow of the underway fluorometer and analysed for the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments only. A BI(Biospherical Instruments) six channel radiometer was also deployed at the stations during this voyage.

    This record contains pigment data collected at 53 CTD stations on the Southern Surveyor cruise SS 11/95 in the oceanic waters between 40 and 53 deg south to the east of Tasmania. Eight of these stations were used in an intercomparison pigment study with Japanese scientists from JAMSTEC.At 10 of these stations samples were collected to determine particulate and dissolved absorption coefficients. There were also 15 samples collected from the outflow of the thermosalinography and analysed for pigments.Pigments were also analysed during 7 grazing dilution experiments, 7 sizre fractionation experiments and 7 deployments of free-floating sediment traps. The data were collected to determine the bio-optical charateristics of this region. The data can be used for Ocean Colour and CDOM sensor validation. Parameters measured are the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments and the absorption coefficient for dissolved (CDOM) particulate (a/p) and detrital or non-algal (a/d) components of the water column.

    This dataset contains HPLC Pigment and Ocean Colour data collected on Southern Surveyor voyage SS2010_v09.The voyage took place in the East Australian Current in the NSW region from the 15th October to the 31st of October. The data can be used for Ocean Colour sensor validation. Parameters measured are the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments and the absorption coefficient for dissolved (CDOM) particulate (ap) and detrital or non-algal (ad) components of the water column. 63 stations were sampled. The data was used primarily to validate ocean colour sensors MERIS, MODIS and SeaWIFS. CLW deployed instruments RAMSES, AC-9 and Hydroscat.

    Larval fishes are a useful metric of marine ecosystem state and change, as well as species-specific patterns in phenology. The high level of taxonomic expertise required to identify larval fishes to species level, and the considerable effort required to collect them, make these data extremely valuable. Here we collate 3178 samples of larval fishes, from 12 research projects from 1983 to November 2016, from temperate and subtropical Australian waters. This forms a benchmark for the larval fish assemblage for the region, and includes recent monitoring of larval fishes at coastal oceanographic reference stations. Comparing larval fishes among projects can be problematic to due to differences in taxonomic resolution, and identifying all taxa to species can extremely challenging, so this study reports a standard taxonomic resolution (of 221 taxa) for this region to help guide future research. All data reported here has been expertly resolved to this taxonomic resolution. The ongoing version of this larval fish database will be freely available through the Australian Ocean Data Network Portal (AODN; http://portal.aodn.org.au/) in the near future, and will serve as a data repository for surveys of larval fish assemblages in the region.

    This record contains data collected at 17 stations on the Franklin cruise FR01/2000 in an area between the mouth of the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea and the equator, plus an additional 4 stations sampled within the Sepik River. The data were collected to determine the bio-optical characteristics of this region and the effect of the Sepik River outflow on such data. The data can be used for Ocean Colour sensor validation. Parameters measured are the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments in the water column. The six channel radiometer was also deployed during this voyage.

    This dataset contains the ichthyoplankton data from three National Reference Stations on the east coast of Australia (North Stradbroke Island, Port Hacking, and Maria Island), and comparable historical data from eight ichthyoplankton surveys that were used to provide a longer term context: RV Sprightly (1983) RV Challenger (1989-1991) RV Franklin (1994) RV Franklin (1997-1998) RV Franklin (1998-1999) RV Southern Surveyor (2004) RV Investigator (2015) FRV Kapala (1989-1993) Refer to the published report which had the following goals: - To evaluate the value of long-term monitoring of ichthyoplankton at selected locations in the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) National Reference Station (NRS) network, - To identify the potential of this monitoring for providing fishery-independent information relevant for marine fishes and their management. Note - Currently only the data from the IMOS NRS Stations have been made available.

    This record contains data collected on the AIMS vessel RV Lady Basten between 5 and 13 June 2002. Parameters measured are the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments and retrieved chlorophyll a estimate. 9 stations were sampled. This cruise was used primarily to validate ocean colour sensors MERIS, MODIS and SeaWIFS and the SST sensor AATSR. Samples were collected for pigments, total suspended solids (TSS) and absorption coefficient- dissolved and particulate.

    This record contains data collected at 16 stations on the Franklin cruise FR07/07 in an area between the mouth of the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea and the equator. The data were collected to determine the bio-optical characteristics of this region and the effect of the Sepik River outflow on such data. The data can be used for Ocean Colour sensor validation. Parameters measured are the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments and the absorption coefficient for dissolved (CDOM) particulate (a/p) and detrital or non-algal (a/d) components of the water column. A BSI (Biospherical Instruments) six channel radiometer was also deployed during this voyage.

    This record contains data collected at 20 stations on the Southern Surveyor cruise SS02/99. Water samples were generally collected along the transect of around 142deg E from 40-55deg S to determinethe bio-optical charateristics of this region. The data can be used for Ocean Colour and CDOM sensor validation. Parameters measured are the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments and the absorption coefficient for dissolved (CDOM) particulate (a/p) and detrital or non-algal (a/d) components of the water column. Much of this was a repeat of a transect sampled during March 1998 on the Aurora Australis cruise AA06/97. In addition to the station samples, 25 water samples were collected from the outflow of the underway fluorometer and analysed for chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments only.
